User Reviews for Bodegas Vega Sicilia Ribera del Duero Alion

Winemaker's Notes:

Vega Sicilia's approach to fine Ribera Del Duero has always been Janus-like,<br/>with Alion representing the more modern side of the door. In the early days,<br/>there may have been too much emphasis on the difference, but now, with nearly<br/>20 year's ownership and experience, the correct balance has been achieved. And<br/>balance, as always, is key here. <br/> <br/>2006 was hotter in Ribera del Duero than in some other parts of Spain, but with<br/>a combination of low yields and relatively late picking the team at Alion were<br/>able to achieve a wine with great fruit character and a very precise chain of<br/>tannic command. From the saturated purple colour to the classic, brooding nose<br/>and the palate of licorice, blackberry, sweet spice and tobacco, this is a very<br/>complete and satisfying wine. <br/>(Simon Field MW, BBR Buyer)
